Francesca Torzo

The Italian architect has run her small, dedicated studio in Genoa since 2008, designing building projects in Europe and China as well as art installations, furniture, and everyday objects. Teaching and academic research, as well as close collaboration with craftsmen, are important influences in her work. Francesca Torzo studied architecture in Delft, Barcelona, Mendrisio, and Venice, then worked with Peter Zumthor, among others, and taught for eight years at the Academy of Architecture in Mendrisio. She has been a professor at Bergen School of Archi tecture since 2017. Torzo was represented at the 2018 Venice Architecture Biennale with her extension of Kunsthalle Z33 in Hasselt, and was a recipient of the International Piranesi Award that same year.
